Pepe set for training

Real Madrid are set to welcome centre-back Pepe back to training this week, as the Portuguese enters the final stages of his recovery.

The 29-year-old underwent a surprise surgical procedure on his ankle at the turn of the year after tests revealed that was the best course of action to treat his discomfort.

Handed a four-to-five-week recovery period, Pepe is reportedly entering the final stages of his recovery and is expected to rejoin training from as early as Tuesday’s session.

The defender is in line to return to full fitness and match preparations in time for next week’s Champions League Last 16 first leg clash with Manchester United.
